Hurray! I received my new Robert Land boots last night and am happy to say that they are wonderful! The soles of the shoes end right at the toe as they should and the fit of the brown boots around the ankle is much better as well. Mr. Land kindly replaced the"blue" shoes with a pair of ivory and black which I absolutely love! I will break-in the brown walking boots this weekend at Luray, but will save my ivory boots for special indoor events. I cannot wait to upload some pictures.
Thank you Mr. Land for standing behind your work and producing a great series of historical footwear!
